Sending Joy - cards and a table runner

More projects with Sending Joy today! The October release from Papertrey Ink continues today. Be sure and visit the blog for a look at all the amazing products coming out this month! So much holiday goodness! And once again, thank you for all the online love! When you work so hard creating a set of images and dies, it feels SO great to have others get excited about them! Huge hugs to you all!

For the last two Christmases I have been obsessed with buffalo check, and the buffalo check pattern in red and black. I changed my tree ribbon to it and bought an adorable wool coat with the same pattern! Its probably the northern Minnesota girl in me and my love of flannel. But the look can be created easily with the gingham border image in Sending Joy. I stamped my image on red cardstock with black ink. I trimmed it out and distressed the edges to give it that rustic feel.

Please note: the border image in this set is an incredibly detailed image. It is also a very long image, as it runs the length of an A2 card. When you stamp the image, you will need to put a good amount of pressure on the center of the image. 

I added several stamped and die cut images from Sending Joy in the corner. To tie in the gold embossed sentiment, I added details to the stamped images with a gold gel pen. Simple touch, easy to do, but it adds quite a bit of visual detail. Plus, sparkle! :D

Wanting to continue using the buffalo check pattern, I punched the stamped image with a small star punch. I knew I could use them to create the look of ornaments. 

After stamping the pine branches along the top of my cardstock, I foam-mounted each of the stars. A black pen allowed me to draw quick strings to "hang" my stars. I finished off the card with some glitter. I stamped an image from Sending You Comfort and used my Quickie glue pen to add glitter. I know, enough with the glitter already. :D

The final project I have to share with you is this table runner! I found this table runner in the Dollar Spot at Target last year and picked up a few. I knew I could stamp on them when the perfect set came along. Today was that day!

Using an ink made for surfaces, I stamped the word joy first. Then I surrounded the word with images from Sending Joy. Again, its simple, but what a beautiful touch to add to your holiday table this season!

I am thoroughly enjoying the visit with my parents, so I apologize for this posting a little late. Shopping and cooking, watching movies, and today some crafting-I could not be happier! Have a wonderful day, friends!

Sincerely Yours,
Supplies. Affiliate links used. List will be updated on October 15, when the release is live.

I love your sets -- seemingly simple but they create such stylish cards. You also give so creative examples. I hope you have more sets in the works.

Happy Saturday! Well, it's actually the evening but before the day was over I wanted to stop by. First, my apologies for not emailing yet. It's been very busy here, Even my church schedule changed. ANYWAY, I've so enjoyed ALL of your projects. When I was an avid Papercraft reader, I remember your name so often. How great to see your beautiful projects. (I need to check dollar & sale sections more often!). I'm a Florida girl but have always loved gingham & plaid, so today was a treat. Thx for sharing your inspiration and tips! (I will email tma & plz reply at YOUR convenience!) Happy Crafting! Stephanie. :)

A trio of delightful things. I really like the cards and want to make some similar. The table runner is a great idea for a treat for my daughter who will be away for a week. I will have it done and on her table as a well home - we missed you treat. Thanks for this great inspiration.
